Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-MT) is poking the bear again.
This time, Cheney is taking aim at Speaker Johnson (R-LA) as part of her mission to prevent Donald Trump from being elected president.
To that point, Cheney has now charged Johnson as a past and future “collaborator” of Donald Trump’s.
Cheney is obsessed… that is the only way I can think to describe this.
In her mind, if Trump wins this election, he will somehow figure out how to get the entire conservative movement and all Republicans on board with the idea of making him some sort of dictator in this country, as though We the People or our military leaders would ever allow such a thing.
Cheney, during a Sunday morning interview, stated, “If you look at what Donald Trump is trying to do, he can’t do it by himself. He has to have collaborators.
“And the story of Mike Johnson is a story of a collaborator.”
She is, of course, referring to the fact that Johnson prepared the amicus brief which was signed by Republican members of Congress to support the lawsuit brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton objecting to the election results in several key battleground states.
When Cheney was asked, “The Speaker of the House is a collaborator to overthrow the last election,” she immediately responded, “Absolutely.”
I don’t have much faith in our government these days, but I do have faith that they would not allow our government to be turned into a dictatorship or monarchy.
Gaslighting, fearmongering… call it whatever you want, but that is what Liz Cheney is doing to voters these days to try to stay relevant.
Correction, it is what she is doing in her effort to try and hawk her new book, “Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning.”
